“I would like to thank Simon, Jess and Lili and team at Belle Property Lane Cove. I had a fantastic experience selling our property. You made the whole process smooth and painless with great communication, knowledge of the market, candour and high-quality level of customer service at all times. We were extremely satisfied with the experience and from the very initial meeting all the way to settlement, Simon Harrison and his team have been so comfortable to work with, so professional and efficient. We wanted to list the property for sale with a quick turn around and the team pulled all strings to make this happen. Further, the team leveraged their network and relationships in the area to make sure we were well placed with similar properties listed at the same time. To me this is going that extra step for peace of mind - not something all agents would go out of their way to do. The team also managed our expectations well, communicated and explained any changes in campaign with buyer feedback and with their great negotiation skills we were able to settle with a fantastic outcome. Jess Goodman in particular made the entire process stress free for us, going out of his way to make our lives easier. Thank you, Belle Property at Lane Cove. I would highly recommend this agent.”
"Well what can I say, what a fantastic result!
Thanks soo much to you and your team Jess.From start to finish you helped me understand everything, knowing this was my first property sale, and your guidance provided a result that I couldn't have imagined a month ago.
My sincere thanks for the work you put in to get it to where it did. I'd definitely recommend yourself as well as Belle Lane Cove to anyone looking to get a great result".
“Jess is very professional to deal with, is honest around expectations and demonstrates clear commitment and passion for his job. These are critically important qualities in such an important life event. I would definitely use Jess again.”
“Simon Harrison and Jess Goodman of Belle Property Lane Cove just sold my property in Lane Cove. From our first meeting their professionalism and attention to detail was impeccable. They had a clear vision on how to bring the property to market and gave me confidence that they were the best agents to manage the sale of my home of forty years.
In the end, they secured a sale price that far exceeded my expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and Jess”.
“It was an absolute pleasure working with you to sell my property in Lane Cove, with an outstanding result! Thank you for your incredible work, your persistence, patience and good humour, and for turning around the sale in record time. Given the compressed timeframe we had to work with, I really appreciated your professional yet ‘roll up your sleeves’ approach, and it was obvious you hit the ground running, and didn’t stop! Any obstacles that appeared were smoothly managed, and the results speak for themselves – a price well above my expectations! Thank you again, and I am very happy to recommend you to anyone looking to sell their home”.
“My husband and I employed Jess Goodman to sell our 2-bedroom apartment in Cammeray. From the outset we found Jess to be professional, diligent, competent and true to his word. Jess clearly stepped us through the process of selling our family home, to which we were novices. Never did we feel overwhelmed during this time and I feel it was Jess' calm, confident and humble nature that made us feel at ease. As a mother of 3 young children I warmed to Jess immediately on our first meeting when he pulled out his phone to share photos of his new born baby! This displayed warmth and openness which I respected. It also marked the beginning of our relationship.
Jess was consistent with his information. His honesty was unwavering and true to his word he acted on our behalf at all stages of the sale process, especially during the heat of the auction where he was able to get the buyer to bid against herself twice, to better the price for us! Furthermore, post auction he stated clearly he wanted to assist us with finding a new family home. And I believed him. Jess does not make empty promises – he follows through with actions on his words.
Jess often referred to the importance of being open and honest with his clients which he believes is integral to establishing a good relationship with them. Selling your family home is a life changing and emotional experience. My husband and I were confident knowing Jess was taking care of us at this time. I am glad to know Jess, and have a feeling that due to the relationship we now have with Jess we will stay in touch as time goes by.
Honest, empathetic, professional, knowledgeable, warm and good humoured are some words that initially come to mind when I think about Jess. I would happily and proudly recommend Jess to any of my family and friends should they need to sell property”.
“We recently sold our 3-bedroom townhouse and were assisted by Jess Goodman and Simon Harrison from Belle Property, Lane Cove. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jess and Simon – we found them to be highly professional, personable and very knowledgeable both about the sale process as well as the local market. We felt that they were always happy to help and answer our questions and we felt like they always went the extra mile both for us and for our property. Jess and Simon’s follow up and accessibility were excellent, and they were always punctual and respectful. We were extremely satisfied with the sale price that we achieved for our townhouse, and we definitely feel that it was down to Jess and Simon getting the right buyers to our auction. We would happily recommend Jess and Simon to anybody interested in selling their property.
“I just wanted to express my thanks for the tremendous effort yourself and the Belle Property team at Lane Cove put in, to sell my unit.
From the initial meeting, right through to exchange and settlement, you have shown me nothing but total professionalism, excellent communication and personal attention in regards to selling my property. I could not have been more thrilled with the result you got for me and can’t believe how easy and straight forward you made the whole sale process.
In saying that, I have no hesitation in recommending yourself and the team at Belle Property Lane Cove to potential vendors in the future. Should they wish to speak to me, please forward them my contact details and I will be more than happy to talk to them.
Thanks once again for the fantastic service”.
"From the outset Jess Goodman was enthusiastic and forthright regarding the marketing and sale of our property. He was always professional and kept us informed throughout the campaign. We are appreciative of Jess's determination and his ability to satisfy our needs along with the needs of the purchasers. We have no hesitation recommending Jess for his integrity, reliability and knowledge of the real estate market in this area".
“It's a tricky task of finding the right person to do the job of selling your home.
We tasked 3 different agencies all of whom came with great references, but there was a big difference where Jess stood out from the beginning. His preparation was excellent, he had obviously done his research of the area and sales history and he presented the sales process very clearly which for first time sellers was critical.
Through the sales process Jess was fantastic when it came to communication, not only in the way we were updated on inspections and potential buyers but he was always available to answer any questions we had and pretty much at any hour.
His negotiation skills at the end of the process were exactly what I expected from him and I believe that he managed to get us a great price at a time when the market was flattening out.
Finally I would like to say that through the selling and buying of property there are a lot of agents out there that I would not trust, Jess it NOT one of them”.
"From the moment I signed with Jess Goodman I was impressed with his integrity and enthusiasm. Just after I signed, two of the banks raised their interest rates, the Macquarie Bank announced that house prices would fall in the next six months and auction clearance rates dropped. Despite all of these external negative issues, Jess used his local knowledge, in both property and customers, to negotiate what I felt was an outstanding price. As the sale was of my mother’s unit and a good price was essential for her future and peace of mind, I could not have been happier with Jess' performance. I would highly recommend Jess Goodman and Belle Property Lane Cove to any potential seller."
“Jess, I am writing to say thank you for all your hard work during the sale of our house. We are very pleased with the sale result and appreciate all your very professional efforts to assist us in preparing the house for sale, your coaching of us through the sales process and the hard work you put in identifying and negotiating with potential buyers. The fact that we exchanged contracts in our dining room at 10pm at night is a crystal clear example of your never ending source of energy and focus throughout the sale process.
Thanks you once again for your efforts”
“Jess Goodman from Belle Property Lane Cove recently acted as the selling agent for my apartment in Lane Cove.
Throughout the process, I was impressed with the effort Jess exerted to ensure that the apartment achieved maximum exposure and that the maximum sale price was achieved. Jess employed innovative marketing strategies and was constantly available to discuss how the sale was progressing.
Jess was operating in a difficult, cooling market but used his in-depth understanding of local real estate to instil confidence that the desired outcome would be achieved. Jess’s knowledge of the buyer pool and the buyer-seller dynamics was critical to him achieving an outstanding result which set a new block record by a considerable margin.
Above all, it was Jess’s honesty which I found to be his defining trait. Whenever there was new information available- whether it be positive, negative or indifferent, it was delivered in a straightforward manner as soon as it came to hand. After dealing with many agents throughout the search for a home, this honesty is what set Jess apart from the rest.
Beyond the sale of my apartment, Jess was also extremely helpful in my search for a property to purchase. Jess provided market insights, property reports, opinions and suggestions of properties that suited my needs.
I would recommend Jess to all potential home sellers and would not hesitate to use him again in the future”.

“I am writing to thank you for your efforts in the sale of our home by auction last Saturday.
We found you and your team to be most efficient and professional. The stylists, handymen and gardening consultants that you referred us to were responsible for the first class presentation of the house for sale. Your reading of the market and the honest assessment of the feedback over the sale period was most appreciated.
Our confidence in your ability to achieve the best possible result was confirmed at the auction”.
